Pop - Alternative
Anikiko is the moniker of Ani Neradilkova, a Sydney songwriter who can fuse words and melody with that magical ease desired by many, but given to few.
Her songs elude easy genre categories, ranging in style from Billie Holiday to Björk - with a tantalising note of otherness from the singer's Czech heritage. Anikiko's voice has the smokiness of a jazz singer's (her father Jiri is a jazz trumpeter who chimes in on a few tracks) but she can also unfurl a purity of tone to woo the cherubim, as she does on the lullaby Andelícku. Stunning. Review - Francis Merson, Limelight Magazine
